SOUTH ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -

Residents of Compton Heights are concerned speeding along Compton Avenue, saying it makes the street more dangerous.

Many people who live along Compton say they are not parking on the street anymore because of parked cars being hit by speeding vehicles.

“People just speed constantly, we’ve had multiple cars hit on Compton,” said resident Alex Roberts.

A traffic study showed speeding is a big problem between Russell and Park.

Alderwoman Christine Ingrassia says the city will be installing imprinted sidewalks with barriers over summer, hoping it encourage people to slow down.
